Electronics Lab with CU Discovery Program

Longmont Estates Elementary is partnering with the CU Discovery Program to bring enrichment opportunities to students on Late Start mornings. In October, students in grades 3-5 were invited to come to school early to take part in an Electronics lab. They did a variety of experiments on a circuit board to learn about resistors, capacitors, transistors, and electrical flow. One of the favorite experiments involved using a flashlight to demonstrate how a photoresistor worked.  And there was a whole lot of buzzing going on when they discovered the buzzer circuit.  The students really enjoyed the hands-on STEM activity as a way to start their day.  We are fortunate to have this opportunity through CU for our students each month.
